11 Handmade Ways to Commemorate Flag Day
Everybody knows Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, but what exactly is Flag Day? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like it would be: the day we commemorate the adoption of the American flag, celebrated on June 14th. We also celebrate the Army’s birthday on June 14th. Flag Day was announced by President Wilson in 1916 and officially enacted in 1949 by Congress. Though not an official federal holiday, Pennsylvania celebrates it as a state holiday.
